The Northerner

Name: Matthew Dietz

Position: Sports Editor

Bio: From Fort Thomas, Kentucky and a native of Northern Kentucky for much of my life. Sports have always been a major part of my life, particularly baseball which I played for about 10 years, and writing has always been one of my strongest suits academically, so getting to combine the two for The Northerner is something I am very excited about. In my free time, I enjoy watching Netflix, playing recreational sports and exercising and fielding mediocre Fantasy Football rosters in the fall. 

Year/Major: Junior/Journalism

Favorite TV show: “The Office”
